Default Gymbals- L/R,R/L ? JR X378

G'day guy's(and gal's)
I've just got myself a JR X378. Very impressive radio. I downloaded the instruction manual, did my research and thought, yes! This is the radio I want.

The problem I found is that all diagrams relating to the radio are reversed (even in the manual!!).
I wanted a mode 2 radio and through my research found the x378 to have this.
So... I bought the radio. The big problem is ......is that its actually designed for someone whose is left-handed.

e.g. Throttle/rudder on the right gymbal.
Aileron/elevator on the left gymbal.

I've reconfigured it to Aileron/elevator on the right
Throttle/rudder on the left.

The problem I have now is that I can't use flaperons or the throttle cut function.
The only way I can restore full function of all controls is to swap the entire left and right gymbals
Is this possible? Is it an easy job? or will I have to take it to an authorised dealer?
Any thoughts? Anyone else find this problem?[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/img]

Sound to me like the previous owner already did something like that. I would open it up and have a look. The gimbles are screwed into place. As long as the wire is long enough, switch them. If you have to break the solder joint I would have someone do it. Either send it to Horizon or maybe a TV repair guy. good luck daveo

It's O.K. guy's,
I've solved the problem. After a thorough going through of the radio, I've found a function called stick.
(Stick is not covered in the manual). After experimenting with this function, I found that it is actually the function to programme what Mode you want. Doh!!!! [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif[/img] [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif[/img]

All literature in regard to the 378 doesn't say anything about switchable mode types.
So if you want a really good radio....You can't go past the 378. I'm happy now..!!!!
